Your captions in the comments and winners (free PoP t-shirts, onesies or tote bags) picked Friday. If you find a caption particularly funny be sure to let me know in the comments so I can select a reader pick too.

Ed. Note: I owe a lot of t-shirts for past winners – let’s schedule a happy hour for Tuesday March 29th at Wonderland (11th and Kenyon St, NW) 5:30-8:30pm outside on the patio. Winners can pick up their shirts then. Thanks!

    The District’s GOP supporters all gather to meet, but are torn on which candidate to support

    • AE

      Lol, good one

  • anon

    Well, I mean, Democrats run the Metro. You HAVE to vote for one of us.

    Casting for “Straight Out of Compton II” was not going well.

  • SFis

    Certain people were not affected by Metro’s shutdown.

  • CNN

    Cue the donkey . . . no wait!!!

    They finished last in a District fantasy football league during an election year.

    Diverse State of New Hampshire holds second Republican primary in DC; fails to make DC great again.

    The Four Horsemen of the apocalypse.

    • On Capital Heels


    • Gumball

      First one to make me laugh!

    • LS

      hilarious–wish I’d thought of that!

    • LittleBluePenguin

      +1 – that’s awesome!

    • ET

      I was thinking along those lines as well but felt it was more like a meeting of the representatives of the 4 Horsemen because the 4 Horsemen themselves were too busy.

    • Mug of Glop

      Friendlessness, handlessness, namelessness, and dehydration?

  • The RZA

    are you sure the line is . . . . “Wu Tang Killa Bees We On a Swarm?”

  • Mk

    BREAKING: the only 4 republicans in DC gather together to confirm that they are not all supporting the same white male.

  • Ron

    How the Republican party shows diversity.

  • BlueStreak

    The cameraman sets up to capture footage of an extremely rare specimen, the DC Republican, in its natural habitat, a luxury hotel.

  • Cruz supporter in his Men’s Wearhouse suit. Kasich and Rubio supporters looking casual in their blazers and the Trump guy wearing the same clothes he slept in.

  • ML

    TV producer: “Okay I think we’re ready to go live on the air. But, um, can we have the guys holding the Cruz, Kasich, and Rubio signs look a little less resentful/miserable?”

  • wdc_anon

    the campaign events were getting so dangerous, the GOP had to find the only non-union stuntmen in town to stand in for the candidates.

  • Anon

    A last minute audible from the RNC forced this venue change from the more appropriate St. Elizabeth’s backdrop.

  • KP

    Casting Call: Due to the low number and elusive nature of DC Republicans, we are casting for GOP supporters for the 6 o’clock news shot. Must be white, male, and show restrained enthusiasm.

  • Beards, they’re not just for your liberal friends anymore.

  • Jessica

    Low turn out at the DC Republican caucus.

  • That One Guy

    One of these is not like the others.

  • Anon

    “CNN can now report that the DC republican caucus has ended in a tie, with one vote going to each candidate.”

  • jim_ed

    Man, the blog “Stuff White People Like” has gotten really lazy lately.

    This is why starting a barbershop quartet through Craigslist will never work in DC.

  • JD

    There are dozens of us… DOZENS!

    • Ally


  • Ally

    Non-entry but just sayin’: Now I know why my husband is so reticent to go to work (his office shares the building with the Loews Madison).

  • wdc

    Hey, why am I Trump?
    Because you’re a blowhard jerk.
    Why can’t we pick our own candidate?
    No way, no way. Tried it once, doesn’t work. You got four guys all fighting over who’s gonna be Kasich, but they don’t know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You’re Trump. Be thankful you’re not Cruz.

  • Mug of Glop

    A most unfortunate barbershop quartet.

    D.C.’s lonely hearts club has its first and last meeting.

    I love these diversity comments. Are you not aware that the dems are only offering up a rich old white lady and an old white Jewish guy?
